We have the dystopian story of surveillance and we know where this goes. But we lack a vivid story of the utopian alternative.

sad if we expect a (other) man made rubric in our self-reflection..

guided self reflect... jaded self-reflect..
one reason we're not getting out of the cycle..

@JustinAion It's why we study and emulate the masters. :) That said, rubrics need anchors to be more than a sheet of paper. @irasocol

@irasocol Then it's a poorly written top level :) I use ee cummings as example of a Level 4. @JustinAion

@JustinAion Learners, especially gifted, need to know what it looks like, sounds like, to go beyond "good enough."  @irasocol

@DataDiva @irasocol As do I. I dislike open-ended for exactly that reason. I want to know what success looks like

@irasocol Find their own - absolutely. The rubric serves as a documentation of a process around quality. @JustinAion

@irasocol A challenge with leaving top level blank is it doesn't help stds see what it looks like to go beyond & break rules. @JustinAion

reminds of saxon.. what he did with math to get to the issue.

When your kid(s) are about to do something you think is risky it’s better to tell them to “pay attention” vs “be careful.” #wisdomfordad

Whenever problems popped up, I’d totally ignore them and pay attention to the people who had them. Suddenly all these issues were just dissolving. I swear it was like a Jedi mind trick.”
